No ding on DH, Ive done things I lived to tell about but when and if I tell my kids and grand kids, honesty gets the best of me. They know they get the "rest of the story" with it, just how dumb I was and how I could have died or hurt someone else doing it. The only way I mess with Mother Nature's Wild Kingdom is with a fishing pole, traps or a gun (All three sometimes)!
Call me over cautious, Lilly livered or self serving but I thought surviving 21 years in the Military was challenge enough. I will try to maintain a significantly higher position than all other creatures small and with huge f'n teeth in the Food Chain at their expense!
